SHELBYVILLE, Ky. — Shelbyville Market Leader Frank Page announced the completion of the bank’s local advisory board. George Borders and Melissa Ballard join Pat Hargadon, whose role on the advisory team was announced in March. Traditional Bank opened a full-service banking center at 601 Shelbyville Road last month.
Page said, “Everyone on our staff is very excited to have the support of Pat, Melissa, and George. We feel like they are the perfect team to help introduce Traditional Bank to families and businesses here in Shelbyville.”
